i got brave and crawled under the beast after steam cleaning. there is a leak at the transmission located at the speedometer cable. i have done some research and figure that the O rings inside the pinion are bad? after cleaning i inspected the cable at the transmission and it was loose to the point that i could easily tighten the collar on the line to transmission by hand. is this the adjustment for the speedometer or should this be tight? the speedometer cable has a nut and a collar which are both adjustable and both were loose. while tightening both the nut and collar move together. when loosening the line the nut type adjuster moves independently from the collar. is this normal? i am going to take it apart and replace the O rings but i am worried about tightening this cable after repair. i am not trusting my instincts on this one. excuse my ignorance but i am slowly coming up to speed with the average site member here. should take me 10 years or so and i am so there.
